As an artist working in multiple mediums, Nikkita's artwork incorporates collage, printmaking, drawing, and various techniques. Her most recent series The Smallest Things I Could Say incorporates trace monotype and selective waxing to engage in and create conversations between marks through linear or circular forms—delicate shapes that seem to enact their own noise, poised to interact with, or speak to, one another.
In Nikkita's poems, process acts as a filter for seeing—through crosshatched lines, the folds of a skirt, or the tenuous stretch of a spider web, both readers and speakers are able to navigate the fields created on the page, in the mind. They have recently appeared in these journals or venues. Click the thumbnails to view.
